Barcode Scanner


R

Rajani

I have tickets printed with barcode. When i scan that code is placed in a
text box of my form. How can i read from the scanner and put it in a specific
text box?

Or i directly want to insert into database. This is my actual requirement.

I tried at many sites. I didnt get reply. I am expecting the answer here.

Thanx in advance

This is no website, but a usenet group, so you could be in luck.

1 Do you want to do this on a client
2 that runs under windows [what?XP?]
3 [browser/wscript?}
4 connected to the server?
5 [via internet/lan?]
6 and the server runs asp?
7 what/where is the output of your barcode reader?

The ASP part is on topic here.

You can't do that with ASP classic, it's handled client-side. As long
as the focus is on the text input when scanned, it drops into the
field automatically. You'd need a Submit button or to use a
client-side submit process, such as Javascript or ActiveX input to
send it to the server for processing into the database.

Check client-side groups for setting the focus on a form.

Hello,

Thak you all for replying. Yes, i want to run it in intranet site using
ASP. Yea, once it is scanned, i want to split into different parts(job,
empid, operation_no)
and placed in the corr form fields. Then i click submit button to insert
into database.
Here, i want to save time for data entry. Means, i dont want to click submit
button for every code scanned. After i scan all the codes then i click
submit. How can i generate form which is filled with scanned barcode. Like
grid.

Thanx again
